  • Huge house, deep emotions, fatigued builders finishing a 4500 sq ft house in 1 week...

    Given the intro and the well known format what is there left to review, well, there was a monster house that was built by an Indian American builder that was totally committed to building this house. Given the format of a 1 week build and an exceptionally huge house (4500 sq ft) it was a miracle they pulled it off. This was an over the top sad but inspiring family case that was heartwrenchingly tough for the mom. EM:HE to the rescue! Never more effective. The reactions of family members were deeply touched beyond gratitude for the obvious philantropy. I was touched by this one.moreless

    • Ed: I have to thank Chris Cooley for making me ache in places I never knew I could ache. But the one thing I think I gave Chris Cooley was how to do a glorified touchdown dance. (dance description: Cross the right leg over the left, spin around, jump in the air, down to the splits, and then up, and then give it the old jiggery pokery) So America, the next time you see Chris Cooley take a touchdown watch for the dance because the limey showed him how to do it. And I'm very proud of that.

    • Ty Pennington: I'm Ty Pennington. For the last five years we've traveled round the country to all fifty states, meeting great folks who just need a helping hand. And with the help of some awesome builders and thousands of volunteers we've changed the lives of over a hundred families. And this season we have a new mission. We're honoring heroes. That's right, everyday people from all walks of life who do extraordinary things. They serve the community and they never give up. It's time to give our countries heroes a hand. So lets get going cos the renovation starts right now.
